Concerns about Catering a Campus Event?
Aramark will soon be the exclusive caterer for departments that purchase catering services with university funds, and several people have expressed concern about upcoming events. Aramark is expected to be in operation at IPFW starting August 24. If your department has scheduled a catered event on or after that date and you would like to begin planning with Aramark, contact Joel Weinzierl at 317-213-7282 or Weinzierl will handle such requests until our food services director, Tara Shepard, is on board.
University departments with events that require catering services prior to August 24 can hire the caterer of their choice. You can review the guidelines under the Caterer Guidelines tab on the Purchasing website, or find out how to reserve a room on the Special Events website. Remember to keep your business manager in the loop about expenses or questions about expenses for catered events.

Toner purchases should be made in Ariba from Cannon IV or GovConnection with Purdue pricing or from ICC Business Products with IPFW pricing. Comparing prices before ordering is recommended. Cannon IV and GovConnection are catalog vendors and ICC is a non-catalog vendor. You can find the ICC toner price list on the Purchasing website. [PDF]

Do mobile devices have a place in the classroom? The Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) thinks they do.

Brenda Groff, continuing lecturer in the Department of Organizational and Leadership Supervision, snapped some photos on her tablet. View large image Photo by Jim Whitcraft
